Professor Cady Will Give 
Abernethy Reading Friday 

Prof. Frank W. Cady will read 
"Rudder Grange” by Frank R. Stockton, 
at the first library reading of the new 
semester, Friday afternoon at 4 o’clock 
in the Abernethy room. 

Stockton, popular short-story writer, 
is one of ithe outstanding American 
humorists who, some critics believe, 
rivals Mark Twain. His is the quiet 
humor which causes his readers to 
chuckle rather than the boisterous sort 
which brings loud laughter. Among 
his other stories are ‘‘The Casting 
Away of Mrs. Leeks and Mrs. Aleshine” 
which Professor Cady gave at one of 
last year’s Abernethy readings, and 
‘•The Lady, or the Tiger”. 

This reading, which is the sixth to 
be presented this year, is under the 
direction of Mrs. Harriet S. Potter, 
curator of the Abernethy library. Stu¬ 
dents and faculty are cordially in¬ 
vited to attend.

Interfraternity Council 

Changes Initiation Rule 

The interfraternity council voted to 
change the rule governing eligibility 
of initiates from the former require¬ 
ment of a passing grade in at least 
twelve semester hours to a standard 
conforming to the scholastic require¬ 
ments of the office of the dean of men. 

In its present state of revision, the 
rule is expressed as follows: "Any man 
not in good scholastic standing in the 
dean's office may not be initiated into 
any fraternity — that is, if he is on 
probation due to scholastic standing.” 
Thus all pledged men are barred from 
initiation unless they are passing in at 
least four courses, three of which must 
be above 70 percent. 

Reference is made to the dean’s 
standards in order that the council 
rule may remain automatically corres¬ 
pondent to the requirements of the 
college, in case of any future changes 
by the administration.

1934 Kaleidoscope 
On Schedule Time 

Editors Complete Dummy 
While Features and Art 
Work Progress Rapidly 

Editorial work on the 1934 Kaleido¬ 
scope is proceeding according to the 
schedule which calls for delivery early 
in May. Three quarters of the manu¬ 
script copy will be sent to the printers 
by the fifteenth of February. Adver¬ 
tising and subscriptions are solicited. 

Group photographs which were re¬ 
ceived from the White Studio last week, 
have been prepared by the photography 
editors and forwarded to -the Canton 
Engraving Company for the developing 
of halftones. Extra prints of any of 
these group pictures may be obtained 
for fifty cents from any member of the 

Material for the opening pages, the 
fraternity section, and for most of the 
organizations section has been prepared. 
A complete dummy, incorporating 
several new features, has been pre¬ 
pared by the editors. The subdivision 
page drawings have been completed by 
the art editors, Reynold Suss ’34 and 
Marian Bugbee ’34 assisted by sopho¬ 
more tryouts. These drawings carry 
out the modernistic treatment used 
throughout the book. Mr. Ralph 
Hitchcock, artist with the Canton En¬ 
graving oompany, has completed the 
art work for the opening pages of the 
book and for the border design. 

Dorothy Sands Will 
Give Entertainment 

Dramatist to Impersonate 
Famous Actors Who Have 
Played in Familiar Roles 

Dorothy Sands, noted impersonator of 
dramatic characters, will give a pro¬ 
gram, “Styles in Acting”, in McCul¬ 
lough gymnasium Thursday, February 
23. This is the fourth event in the 
current entertainment course series. 

During the evening Miss Sands will 
portray characters from famous plays 
of each period she describes. The roles 
represented will be: Millament in “The 
Way of the World”, by William Con¬ 
greve; Almahide in "The Conquest of 
Granada”, by John Dryden; Nellie 
Hathaway in “The Silver King”, by 
Henry Arthur Jones; Candida in 
•’Candida”, by George Bernard Shaw; 
and Anna Christie in “Anna Christie”, 
by Eugene O’Neill. Here the actress will 
impersonate Pauline Lord in her famous 
role Lady Macbeth, and the sleep walk¬ 
ing scene from Shakespeare’s play as it 
might be portrayed by Haidee Wright, 
Ethel Barrymore, and Mae West, will 
conclude the program. 

Miss Sands appeared in Middlebury 
ten years ago when she played the 
leading feminine role in a play given 
by a class in drama at Radcliffe college. 

She has recently been appearing at 
the Booth theatre in New York, offer¬ 
ing the same program she will present 

According to posted advertisements, 
the entertainment is to be given in 
Mead memorial chapel, but it has been 
found necessary to use the gymnasium 
instead in order to have adequate stage 

Season ticket reservations and single 
admissions will again be handled at the 
Frost pharmacy in Middlebury.

Pi Delta Epsilon To 
Hold School Contest 

Journalistic Fraternity to 
Give Prizes for the Best 
Scholastic Publications 

A contest among the high schools of 
the Champlain valley to select the best 
scholastic publication will be conducted 
by Pi Delta Epsilon, honorary journal¬ 
istic fraternity, this spring. 

According to present plans the 
schools will be awarded prizes in the 
late spring after all those desiring to 
participate have had an opportunity to 
submit their publications. Prizes will 
consist of a trip to Middlebury for the 
editors of the three best entries. In 
addition to this a silver cup will be 
presented to the school ranking first 
place and a bronze placque to the 
second prize winner. 

A unique point system of judging has 
been worked out by the committee in 
charge which will allow all classes of 
school publications to be entered in 
the contest. The four classes which 
have been determined upon are news¬ 
papers, quarterlies, literary magazines, 
and year books. Each issue submitted 
will be graded as to the excellence of 
journalistic effort shown therein. Pub¬ 
lications will also be graded in regard 
to the size of the budget, the uniform 
excellence of several issues, and the 
extent of faculty supervision. 

The committee in charge of this event 
consists of Anthony G. L. Brackett '33, 
chairman; Harthon L. Bill ’33, William 
S. Weier ’33, Robert L. Cushing ’34, 
and Charles N. DuBois '34. All of these 
men are members of Pi Delta Epsilon. 
Amy L. Niles ’33, editor of the Saxon- 
ian, will also serve on -the committee. 

Wig and Pen Formal 
At Inn February 25 

Exclusive Dance to Feature 
Bill Dehey’s Orchestra and 
Special Lighting Effects 

A formal dance will be given at the 
Inn February 25 by Wig and Pen, 
honorary dramatic society. Music will 
be by Bill Dehey and his orchestra and 
■there will be special lighting effects 
and decorative features. 

No tickets will be sold for this dance. 
It will be completely exclusive in its 
nature. The number of those present 
will be strictly limited to forty couples. 
All members of Wig and Pen are eligible 
to attend and approximately twenty 
other students who are actively inter¬ 
ested in dramatics and who have done 
work in dramatic productions will also 
be invited. In order for anyone to be 
eligible his name must have appeared 
on at lea3t one program of a presenta¬ 
tion at the playhouse. 

Bill Dehey’s orchestra of eleven men 
is one of the most popular orchestras 
in the east in collegiate circles. The 
band has played at Williams, Yale, 
Skidmore ,and.Smith as well as the 
DeWitt Clinton hotel in Albany, several 
prominent clubs in the east and has 
done much broadcasting work. 

This dance will be quite different in 
i:s nature from the usual type of formal. 
A particular theme will be carried out 
in the decorations, programs, and light¬ 
ing effects. The dramatic department 
is cooperating with the dance commit¬ 
tee by designing decorations and set¬ 

The committee in charge of the ar¬ 
rangements consists of Anthony G. L. 
Brackett '33, chairman, James C. Judge 
'33, Ruth H. McMenemy '33, Emory T. 
Hutchins '34, and Frances E. Sargent 
34. Invitations will be issued this week. 

Wagner Celebration to Be 
Sponsored by German Club 

A special program commemorating 
the fiftieth anniversary of the death of 
Richard Wagner will be sponsored by 
the college German club in Mead 
memorial chapel Wednesday evening, 
February 15. 

Dr. Werner Neuse, head of the Ger¬ 
man department will speak on Wagner 
from a literary standpoint, treating His 
position in the great literature of the 
world. Mr. Lansing Hammond, leader of 
the Wagner Verein, is to present the 
musical side of the man’s life. He will 
use recordings of the composer’s opera¬ 
tic and symphonic works, some of which 
have featured the weekly meetings of 
his group. 

Several Wagner numbers will be sung 
by Miss Prudence H. Fish, and Mr. Fritz 
Tiller will play violin selections from 
the works of the composer. These 
compositions will be similar to those 
studied in the Wagner Verein. 

The club extends cordial invitation to 
members of the faculty and student 
body to attend the celebration. 

The final vote on the question of 
abolition to have been taken Monday 
evening, February 6, by the sorority 
women on this campus, has been de¬ 
ferred ait the recommendation of the 
administration of Middlebury College. 
This recommendation was made to the 
Pan-Hellenic council February 3 by 
Dean Ross, in behalf of the adminis¬ 

Shortly after the announcement in 
the last issue of the CAMPUS that 
'the final ballot would be held February 
6, a petition drawn up by a group of 
fraternity women and bearing the 
signatures of eighty-eight sorority 
members, was presented to the Pan- 
Hellenic council. This petition suggest¬ 
ed that the vote be taken numerically 
rather than by sororities, and that 
the feeling of the alumnae be in no way 

At a meeting of the council held 
January 29, it was decided that no 
action could be taken by It on the 
petition, since such action would 
be Illegal according to the local 
Pan-Hellenic constitution and ac¬ 
cording to national Pan-Hellenic re¬ 
quirements. For this reason the peti¬ 
tion was returned to its originators. 

Definite regulations in regard to the 
final vote were drawn up by the council 
at the same meeting, and these were 
recommended to the sorority chapters 
the following day, January 30. The

Mountain Club Plans 
Hikes For Semester 

Two Trips to Camp Naidni 
On Lake Dunmore Sche¬ 
duled Sunday and Monday 

The mountain club has completed 
plans for a series of hikes to be taken 
during the second semester. Prelimi¬ 
nary arrangements were made by the 
executive committee at meetings held 
during the past week. 

Next Sunday and Monday, Camp 
Naidni on Lake Dunmore will be the 
destination. Each day the hikers will 
leave Battell cottage at 10 a. m. There 
will be skating and hockey on the sur¬ 
face of the lake, and a trip will be made 
to the Cascades, a falls on the opposite 

Those planning to make the trips 
should sign at the editor’s office by 
Friday. Each person is to bring a 
lunch and fifty cents. A hot supper 
will be provided. 

During the remainder of the month 
of February, snowshoe trips will be 
taken whenever there is a sufficient 
amount of snow. 

A long trip to Lincoln mountain will 
be undertaken either March 5 or 12. 
There will also be a shorter hike to 
the first range of the Green moun¬ 
tains the same day. 

The first Sunday after spring vaca¬ 
tion, the annual ”sugaring-off” party 
will be held. The group will visit a 
sugar camp, and assist in the process of 
boiling down the sap.

"Log of the Sea” by Felix RLsen- 

berg. New York: Harcourt, Brace 

& Co. $3. 

This is a book of sea stories which are 
different. We do not find here a tale 
of breathless adventure and action, nor 
is it a volume of separate yarns loosely 
tied together by a slender thread of 
plot. Captain Risenberg sets down his 
own adventures and his own thoughts. 

He writes as though he were having a 
quiet chat with one rather than as a 
lecturer relating his adventures from 
the platform. 

Of course there are plenty of thrill¬ 
ing stories in the 352 pages of the 
book, and plenty of the sharp tang of 
salty air and biting spray. However we 
liked hLs comments on the men he has 
met in his long life of sea faring and 
his poet like appreciation of the beauties 
of the sea. Nobody can read this book 
and think of the typical sea captain 
as a two fisted monster whose chief 
interest is breaking skulls. There is 
call of the ocean in this book which 
is more than a breathless chase for 

Captain Risenberg got his first taste 
of the sea during the 90's in the old 
training ship St. Mary's, built in 1844. 
After completing his “course” of train¬ 
ing he shipped aboard a vessel bound 
for the west coast 'and thus obtained his 
first real experience by the stormy 
rounding of the Horn. Since then he 
has sailed the seven seas carrying all 
kinds of cargos and commanding all 
sorts of ships. He knows his business 
and can write interestingly and in¬ 
formally, although never coarsely, of 

announcements of The C^htury Com¬ 
pany for spring publication. The 
twenty-third of this month will appear 
“Science in the Changing World", 
priced at $2. 

Listed as authors of this book are 
some of the best known scientists, 
sociologists, and philosophers of the 
present day. The roster includes Dr. 
John Baker, Hilaire felloe, Hugh 
L’Anson Fausset, J. B. S, Haldane, Sir 
Thomas Holland, Julian ftuxley, prof. 
H. Levy, and Bertrand Russell. We 
wonder if any collaborating was done 
or whether each man forked inde¬ 
pendently. At any rate the work should 
be “of Importance to the social, eco¬ 
nomic, and spiritual welfare of man¬ 
kind”, as the advertisement reads.

The ultimate question of the abolition of sororities from this cam¬ 
pus is for the time being overshadowed by the question of the method 
of voting which should be employed to determine the results. 

A petition is now before the administration of Middlebury Col¬ 
lege asking that the vote be taken numerically, rather than by sorori¬ 
ties, in order that this final ballot may represent the opinion of the in¬ 
dividual fraternity women instead of that of the aggregate groups. 

In this way there would be no danger of the two votes granted each j the"beautyTnd adventure of the ocean, 
chapter under the Panhellenic system of balloting, being cast in such j "Log of the Sea” is well worth reading, 
a way that perhaps one vote in a sorority might decide the stand of 
the entire group. 

By a numerical vote the wish of the majority of all the sorority 
members would be made known. We feel that in such a vital question 
•as this the feeling of the majority of the members of the sororities in 
the women’s college should count more than anything else. It is also 
felt that such a method of voting is in reality fairer to both sides, 
and would leave no opening for complaint after the final vote had 
been tabulated. — Miriam Barber. 

We are very much interested in the 

Another announcement of interest is 
that of "World Dance of the Machines” 
by Leo Hausleiter, translated from the 
German. This book was entitled 
"Revolution in World Industry” when 
published in Europe. The author, ac¬ 
cording to the announcement, "is a 
German engineer, economist, and poli¬ 
tician". Doubtlessly the book will be 
rather startling reading add with little 
.to offer of a constructive nature. We 
were interested, however, in the fact 
that "his historical sketches of im¬ 
portant political events are not only 
original and impressive, put startling.” 
This book is to be ready May 16 and 
will cost $3. g.l. 

Editor’s note: “Galley CHrist” was not 
written this week by the usual re¬ 
viewer, John Israel Smith ’35. Mr. 
Smith will write this feature next week 
but henceforth will not be a regular 
feature of the CAMPUS although he 
will write occasional articles.

rect. The donor of new chapel was

You can prove it with your very 
own eyes, folks, by glancing again at 
the front page of this issue, ith'at the 
CAMPUS is back on the regular sche- 

(not to be confused with the cavalry 
branch, Hortense) due to some con¬ 
tracts and things, for the brief space of 
one week. But now we're back and 
aintcha glad, aintcha? 

Over the last week-end, Middlebury 
stiffened under the second fair snow¬ 
fall of the current season. The scenic 

With the announcement of grades for the first semester our at- j dule. It seems we were hors de combat 
tention is again called to the system of ranking in force here at Mid¬ 
dlebury. The extent of the evils indicates that some change should 
be made in the present method of grading, although many of the 
difficulties are of such a varied nature that it is hard to prescribe any 
one means of improvement. 

In theory there is a marking system at Middlebury with 100 
points. Except in very unusual cases, however, the practice is to use a j effect was grand about dawn Sunday

It is also true that in many courses grades are indicated with only 
three or four criterion for the mark. In many courses but two or 
three hour examinations are given and the results of these few tests are 
the chief means of determining the student’s grade. In as fine a 
system of marking as Middlebury’s there certainly should be more 
opportunity to determine the grade of the student. 

We also feel that the method of choosing the dean’s list is not fair. 

Selection for this list should be on a strictly mathematical basis, and if 
a student stands high enough in most of his courses to compensate for 
a low grade in others he should be given dean’s list privileges. In | 
other words, we do not believe that a student with an average of above 
eighty-five should be kept from the dean’s list because of one or more 
grades below eighty. 

Then the effect of the "pipe” course is unduly intensified because 
•of the present grading methods. We would rearrange the course marks 
in proportion to the median of the course and an arbitrary median 
lor the entire college. We would have each professor grade according 
to his usual method and upon the grades being handed in at the regis¬ 
trar’s office the median point of each course would be altered in pro¬ 
portion to the figure set up as the college average. Nearly every 
professor places over seventy per-cent of his students within a range of 
twenty points and fifty per-cent within a range of ten points. By 
proportioning the course grades with the college average a uniform 
standard would be attained. 

A decided change in the marking system should be made, but 
while it is being worked out the suggestions we have set forth could 
be applied to our present method. We feel ttyat some improvement 
would be noted although more radical changes would be necessary be¬ 
fore conditions would be entirely satisfactory. 

next month’s allowance. 

Usually we avoid superlatives; even 
comparatives are odious (unquote), 
but the 1936 edition of the Frolic left 
nothing to be desired, when we concede 
that Guy and ithe Roosevelt grill are 
out of the question. Orchids to the first 
class to run a semi-formal dance that 
turned out to be semi-formal! 

Between halves at the melee, some¬ 
body wondered what could be more ap¬ 
propriate for a jungle band than red 
monkey jackets? And of course some¬ 
body in the next chair had to suggest 
green . . . frosh . . . green - - check? 

In spite of all previous season scores, 
both pucksters and basketeers turned 
in most satisfactory results last Satur¬ 
day. Another corsage of orchids to that 
gamey, sporting bunch of Colgate 
skaters, who complained at nothing 
more than the confusion of opposing 
the twins playing defense for Mid¬ 
dlebury. Of course you heard the crack 
about the referee, slightly muddled, who 
dropped the whistle and blew the puck? 

Though we have alluded to the 
hockey rink before, we apparently spoke 
too soon. Any institution which pro¬ 
vides as much hilarious fun for as 
many village guests in as many nights 
must be just about perfeot. 

Can we advance the item for its 
bare news value that the assessment for 
three dollar class dances will hereafter 
be reduced to the courteous sum of fifty- 

one cents? Or should We recommend 
a course at the mint Jh Washington

How times change! Row fleeting is 
human friendship! It seems but yes¬ 
terday that the last dog fawned on the 
| leg of a chapel speaker and was re¬ 
warded with a gentle hut and a witty 
comment. But now ithe strong arm of 
the law reaches out and limits the 
benefits of daily chapel to mere stu¬ 
dents, with a stern ultimatum to dog- 
lovers and fraternity houses (nice dis¬ 
tinction?) that canines ate to be guard¬ 
ed as a private possession. Middlebury 
tuition should take a 'tremendous drop 
next fall, counting five dollars for every 
one of the roaming beasts on campus. 

Carrying the thing through to the 
logical conclusion, we exhect that ditty, 
“Nuts About Mutts” to be banned from 
the radio, effective Monday night. 

Not that the Inn isn’t the best place 
in the world for a jolly- good time to 
be had by all, but it 'does seem that 
amorous coeds might try to keep their 
affections under control — at least to 
the extent of openly hissing! With a 
single tsk we frown on that, decidedly! 

And who was that £lrl that wanted 
ito know why someone didn’t mend the 
holes in the stockings of the hockey 
team? We might suggest that very few 
of our stalwart ice-men are potent with 
a needle and thread. In all fairness it 
muslt be said that the young woman 
in question offered h§r help. What a 
woman won’t do for a Uniform! l.j.m. 

With considerable surprise we look 
forward to the first Saturday night in 
what seems years without the prospect 
of strangulation over a tux collar. As if 
to placate the naughty stay-up-lates 
who have trotted three formats in a 
row, the authorities h^Ve granted 11:30 
permission to the gym informalities. 
Boy, are we gonna have fun! 

It wouldn’t be right not to acknowl¬ 
edge the annual reign of the sadists, 
locally in effect this week. We believe 
it when we’re told tfia original sadist 
(fraternity member to you) was none 
other than Bluebeard. What a mob 
of disciples that sissy left! 

To the Editor of the CAMPUS: 

The sorority question perplexes the 
women of Middlebury College a great 
deal in these days. A decision is about 
to be made which will provoke a vari¬ 
ous response. However the vote turns 
there must inevitably be some women 
who approve, some women who are dis¬ 
mayed. We listen to each other’s views 
hoping to see the problem clearly. 
Through the CAMPUS we have heard 
the voice of a sorority woman who still 
maintains that sororities are worth 
keeping. Another sorority woman has 
spoken who questions their value. I 
write this communication to voice the 
stand point of a non-sorority woman. 

If by chance sororities are abolished 
in the final vote - - do not expect to 
find yourself outside a sister-hood. You 
will be incorporated into a vaster, more 
realistic sorority - - one of greater in¬ 
dependence and more sincere fellow¬ 

Some of you may fear that without 
your sorority you will have lost a prop. 
You argue that there must be some 
smaller units of loyalty. Of course 
there must be - - and of course there 
will be - - but these new units will be 
less exclusive, less prohibitive, and less 
binding than the old. They will not be 
as static as sororities tend to be. 

You will lose no opportunity for 
service. You will, I believe, find more, 
for you will come in closer contact with 
those who need your understanding 
and sympathy far more than do your 
sisters who so nearly resemble you. 

As for ideals - - it is ridiculous to 
suppose that they are not fostered out¬ 
side of the arbitrary units marked by 
this or that combination of Greek 
letters. The intangiblity of idealism 
is every day being made concrete in 
this broader sisterhood now by some 
unobtrusive service, now by an act of 
loyalty which looks for no reward, and 
by the constant give and take of en¬ 
couragement, advice and friendliness. 
Idealism fortunately need not be the 
product of sororities. 

Finally and above all else the price 
that is paid to maintain these smaller 
units is tremendous. There is the finan¬ 
cial expense of course, which helped to 
focus our attention on this situation. 
But infinitely more Important Is the 
emotional expense Involved In rushing 
and in the adjustment that must be 
made by those who are given no bids. 
This emotional expense falls upon u s 
all in one way or another. The benefit 
received needs to be very great to Justify

“What Is Truth?” Is 
Theme Of Vespers 

Professor Frank W. Cady 
Shows Idealist’s View 
Comes Closer to Christ 

Prof. Prank W. Cady of the depart¬ 
ment of English at Middlebury took 
“What is Truth?” as the subject of 
his address at Sunday vespers, taking 
as his text Pilate’s inquiry of Jesus, 
found in John xviii:38. 

“It is a question which never has been 
and never will be fully answered,” said 
Professor Cady. “The words of Christ 
‘I am come to show truth unto the 
world’ are the nearest to which any 
Answer has come.” 

There are many sorts and varieties of 
truth but they may be divided very 
generally into two classes, the speaker 
said: the truth of the materialist, and 
the truth of the idealist. The material¬ 
ist believes that truth may be found 
in what can be perceived through the 
senses. His truth is knowledge and 
is undoubtedly the basis fox' much 

human progress in science. However, 
it was pointed out that this truth is 
narrow, limited to the boundaries of 
this world. It does not recognize that 
shadowy realm of the spirit and leaves 
no room for faith. 

The Idealist seeks truth through 
spiritual intuitions. The idealistic atti¬ 
tude inevitably is the religious attitude, 
Professor Cady said. Religion founds 
itself on these things alone. Hence 
it is easier for the idealist to come to 

Professor Cady cited the example of 
Thomas, the disciple who doubted and 
had to be shown. He quoted the words 
of Christ: “Because thou hasi; seen me, 
thou hast believed. Blessed are those 
who have not seen,yet believe.” 

He also gave as an illustration the 
play, “The Hourglass”, by William 
Butler Yeats which depicts the triumph 
of a spiritual idealist and the truth 
of God over the knowledge of the 
materialist, through the teaching of a 
half-witted fool. 

“We do not see the truth, God sees it 
in us,” the speaker said in conclusion. 
“Search as we may we cannot find it 
unless we realize that in Christ lies the 
true pattern of manhood.”

Freshmen Sponsor Annual 
Frolic at Middlebury Inn 

Seventy-five couples were present at 
the annual Frosh Frolic Saturday 
evening at the Middlebury inn. 

The music was furnished by Jimmy 
Farnham and his Jungle Club band 
from Manchester, N. H. The arrange¬

executive council instead of a special 
committee, as has been the custom in 
past years. The members of the com¬ 
mittee were Katharine L. Kelley, chair¬

Chesterfields are 

W HEN you ask a Chesterfield 
smoker why that’s his brand — he 
generally comes right out flat-footed and 
says . . .“It’s because They’re Milder!” 

So we’re going to keep on doing 
everything we know how to keep them 
that way. 

That’s why we look for and buy the 
mildest and ripest tobaccos we can get. 
That’s why we age them in our ware¬ 
houses till they’re mellow and sweet. 

We believe that even the shredding 
of the tobacco ... and the quality of the 
paper it’s rolled in, have a lot to do 
with the even-drawing, mild smoke that 
people enjoy in Chesterfields. 

You can bank on this.. .every method 
known to science is used to make Chest¬ 
erfield a milder, better-tasting cigarette 
that satisfies.

Sophomore Women Hold Class Outing 

At Lake Dunmore Yesterday Evening 

The sophomore class of the women’s 
college held an outing at Lake Dunmore 
yesterday afternoon and evening. 

Preparations for the party were made 
by ithe following committee of sopho¬ 
more women: Elizabeth B. Bailey, 
chairman; Mary G. Ballard, Dorothy 
Gray, Lois Mack, and Susanne M.

Mary C. Dutton, the college dietition. 
Miss Mary S. Rosevear and Miss Marion 
L. Young accompanied the group as 
faculty guests and chaperons. 

Professor Freeman Talks 
At English Club Meeting 

Professor Stephen A. Freeman ad¬ 
dressed the English club alt the home 
of President Paul D. Moody, Wednesday 
evening, February 1. 

He spoke on Marcel Proust, modern 
French author, and his influence upon 
modern thought. Proust introduced 
Bergsen’s philosophy into modern 
literature, through fiction. This philo¬ 
sophy holds that man gains insight into 
reality not by intellect but by intuition 
by which he can reproduce the early 
events of his life. The true significance 
of Proust lies in this element of time 
and manner of recollection. The com¬ 
plete series of his novels are entitled. 
‘‘In Search of Lost Time”, illustrating 
his emphasis of the force of intuition. 

Forty students and faculty members 
attended. Refreshments were served.

The stage is all set for target practice. The magician 
lifts his bow and aims an arrow at the bull's-eye. Ills 
lovely assistant then steps in front of the target and 
he shoots the arrow—apparently through her—and it 
fixes itself in the very center of the bull’s-eye! And 
she smiles through it all while the audience gasps. 


The arrow which the marksman “shoots through" his 
assistant simply folds up into the crossbow! The 
arrow which is actually embedded in the target is shot 
by the girl herself from a belt concealed under her 
dress. She releases a little spring, the arrow unfolds, 
and shoots straight into the bull’s-eye! It is all done in 
a flash! So quickly the eye cannot detect the girls 
movements! To heighten the impression that the ar¬ 
row has gone right through, the girl releases a ribbon 
from the front of her dress—the continuation, appar¬ 
ently, of the ribbon attached to the arrow in the target. 

It’s fun to be fooled —’s more fun to KNOW 

Like to see through tricks? Then let’s 
look at another... the illusion in ciga¬ 
rette advertising called “Cigarettes 
and Your Throat.” 

The audience is told that by certain 
magic processes tobacco can be made 
as soothing as cough medicine. 

explanation: The easiest cigarette 
on your throat is the cigarette that is 
made from the choicest ripe tobaccos. 
Cheap, raw tobaccos are, as you would 
naturally expect, harsh in their effects 

upon the throat. 

If you have to consider your throat, 
the quality of the tobacco in your 
cigarette is important. 

It is a fact, well known by 
leaf tobacco experts, that 
Camels are made from finer, 
MORE EXPENSIVE tobaccos than 
any other popular brand. 

Camels are as non-irritating as a ciga¬ 
rette can be because Camels use choice, 
ripe, tobaccos. 

And because of the matchless blend¬ 
ing of these costlier tobaccos Camels 
have a rich bouquet and aroma... a 
cool, delicious flavor. 

Keep the air-tight, welded 
Humidor Pack on your Camels 
to assure yourself and your 
companions a fresh, cool smoke. 






Middlebury Ice Men Down Colgate 
4-3, But Bow To Mass. State 3-2 

CourtTeamTo Meet Panther Quintet Outclasses Norwich 
St. Michael’s Tonight 47-29 In First State Series Game 

The Middlebury hockey team won one 
game and lost one on Its home rink 
last week. Tuesday, January 31, Mass. 
State defeated the Panthers, 3-2, and 
Saturday Middlebury was victorious 
over Colgate, 4-3. 

For a large part of the game Middle¬ 
bury kept the puck in the opponent’s 
territory but was unable to tally. The 
Blue and White attack was composed 
for the most? pant, of flipping the puck 
from in back of the blue line down to 
the Mass. State cage, then following 
up and trying to sink ithe rebound. 

The Bay Staters played a defensive 
game until they had a good opportunity 
to break away and it was only in the 
third period that they were able to 
snap the 2-2 tie. Cain got the puck 
in a mixup before the Panther net and 
sank his shot for what proved to be the 
margin of victory. 

Throughout the game the Middmen 
made persistent efforts to break through 
the opponents’ defense.. Part of the 
time there were five men down the 
ice, and in the last few minutes of 
the Anal period, Hickcox was taken out 
of the goal and another wing was put 
in his place to increase the strength of 
the aittack. This was to no avail and 
when the final whistle blew, Middle¬ 
bury was on the short end of the score. 

The home team showed a strong at¬ 
tack and the defense was the best that 
it has been this year. Scotty Mac- 
Lean played ian excellent brand of 
hockey at defense and at times the 
forward lines showed enough drive to 
have won an ordinary game. They were 
slowed up by the poor condition of the 
ice, which made speed and teamwork 
almost impossible. 

The freshmen candidates had their 
first opportunity in varsity competition 
and played a fine game. They fitted 
in well and promise to strengthen the

Panther Trackmen 
Work Out For Meet 

Team to Enter New Eng¬ 
land Intercollegiate Con¬ 
test Held at Boston Garden 

Middlebury’s state champion track 
team is working out dally, undaunted 
by winter weather, in preparation for its 
participation in the annual New Eng¬ 
land Intercollegiate meet at the Boston 
Garden, February 18. Coach Brown has 
not yet decided on the definite person¬ 
nel of the Middlebury delegation, but he 
expects to send down a larger group 
than has represented the Blue and 
White in recent years. 

It is almost certain that the Pan¬ 
ther trackmen will have a one-mile 
relay quartet entered. Coach Brown 
has been working particularly hard on 
quarter-milers, and hopes to put to¬ 
gether a fast foursome. In time trials 
and 'handicap practices he has been get¬ 
ting an idea as to the merits of the 
double-furlong runners, and so far it 
appears as though ithe team will be 
chosen from Boehm, Deemer, Hunter, 
Montgomery, Prochazka, and Roberts. 
Last Wednesday Montgomery, Prochaz¬ 
ka, Hunter, and Boehm ran together 
and overcame handicaps of 25 and 40 
yards given to two other teams. 

The versatile Brown, who can usually 
be depended upon for points in any 
competition, will probably be unable 

of the season for the Middlebury team 
and the play was of a high quality 

The Middmen started early and be¬ 
fore the game was more than two min¬ 
utes under way, Dwyer neatly sank the 
puck in the Maroon cage on hLs own 
rebound. From the time of the first 
whistle 'the Blue and White attack got 
going and forced the issue during the 
whole game. Every man on the team 
played a hard game, and more co¬ 
ordination was displayed than in any 
previous contest. The offense clicked 
smoothly, driving down upon the Col¬ 
gate cage time after time, giving the 
goalie a severe testing. The defense 
worked as well as the offense and the 
New York team had difficulty in get¬ 
ting near enough to the Middlebury 
goal to try a close-up shot. 

The Panthers scored a second tune in 
the first period when Clark picked up a 
rebound and flipped It into the net. 
This gave Middlebury a 2-0 lead. Later 
on in the same period, Colgate garner¬ 
ed a point when Wheeler scored un¬ 

In the second period of the game, the 
Maroon scored twice. The first was 
made after about six minutes and the 
second three and a half minutes later. 
Wheeler was also instrumental in both 
of these, scoring one himself and mak¬ 
ing an assist for the other. 

When the final period came around, 
the Blue and White came through to tie 
the score on a goal by D. MacLean with 
a shot that carried from beyond the 
blue line. After about ten minutes of 
fast hockey by both teams, the dead¬ 
lock was broken by Clark when he 
poked in the puck from the mouth of 
the cage for the margin of victory. 
From that time until the end of the 
game, Colgate tried with all their power 
to get at the Middlebury goal but 
they were unsuccessful in penetrating 
the defense. The Panthers nearly 
scored again after that but very quick 
work on the part of the Maroon goalie 
stopped further point getting.

Game Will Be Important in 
Deciding Title of Annual 
State Basketball Series 

Having taken Norwich into camp so 
easily in then- recent game, the Middle¬ 
bury hoopmen are highly confident of 
adding St. Michael's to their list of 
victims when the two teams meet here 
Wednesday night. With this contest 
out of their way, they are hopeful of 
repelling the invading Lowell Tech 
quintet Saturday. 

The encounter with the Mikemen is 
of considerable importance to both 
outfits, as a victory for the Beckmen 
will leave them the only undefeated 
team in the conference, while a reverse 
for the visitors would seriously affect 
their chances for a state championship. 
Thus both will bend every effort to 
come out on top. 

In their last two starts, St. Michael’s 
has lost to Clarkson, and St. Lawrence, 
but these two 'teams are recognized as 
being especially strong this season, 
ranking with the best. 

Ruggiero, Janis, and Bozek will in all 
probability see service at the forward 
berths for the Carrmen, with the high 
scoring Miles jumping center. Tierney 
and Meade will make up the defence. 
To date the opposition has found Miles 
the most difficult to keep under con¬ 
trol, but Ruggiero has also shared the 
spotlight with the sturdy pivot man. 

The Lowell Textile squad that comes 
here Saturday, is capable of extending 
the Beckmen to the limit. Curiously 
enough they are coached by "Rusty” 
Yarnell, an old U. V. M. luminary, 
which in itself will cause the visitors 
to press hard for victory. His quintet 
was barely nosed out by the unbeaten 
M. I. T. team, and at one stage of the 
game were leading 23-13. Likewise they 
forced Tufts to the utmost, but again 
lost by a narrow margin. 

The rejuvenated outfit presented by 
Coach Beck against Norwich was a 
pleasant surprise, and not only played 
a much better game than previously, 
but showed a winning spirit. They 
acted at ail times as though they were 
confident of the outcome, and while 
Norwich lacked the class to make 
things interesting, the Middmen looked 
like a much improved team. The 
St. Michael’s conflict should be worth 
watching, and chances are bright that 
the Blue and White will annex their 
second state series victory.

runs, and both are turning in good j 
practice performances. Both of these 
men should score in the meet. 

Roberts will be entered in the hurdles, 
while Prochazka will run the 50 yard : 
dash. There is u possibility that a 
number of others will compete, but their 
choice is still undecided. 

With winter track in full swing, at¬ 
tention is already being given to the 
impending outdoor season. The sche- j 
dule is almost complete, according to j 
manager Newman, and will include the 
following meets: April 29, Williams, at 
Williamstown; May 2, Montreal A. A., 
at Middlebury; May 13, E. I. A. A. 
Championships at Worcester; May 20, 
Union, at Schenectady; and May 27, 
Green Mountain Conference Cham¬ 
pionships, at Northfield. Manager 
Newman is still working on another 
meet, to precede the Williams encount¬ 
er, but has not yet signed one up. A 
previously scheduled meeting with Al¬ 
fred has been cancelled. 

Since first year men are not eligible 
to participate in this first contest at 
Boston, Coach Brown has not called 
upon freshmen. They will be available 
for later meet, however, with the ex¬ 
ception of the eastern intercollegiates. 

To Be Encountered This 
Thursday and Saturday 

The Middlebury hockey sextet left 
late yesterday on a three game trip, 
which in addition to the Williams en¬ 
counter last night, will bring them up 
against Princeton, and Mass. State. 

Thursday they oppose the fast 
Princeton ice team and the odds appear 
■too great to overcome. The Tigers! 
have an unusually strong combination, 
and the brilliant Toronto aggregation , 
was forced to an overtime period to ; 
defeat them. Kammer, Lane, Whit¬ 
man. and Tiers form a group of classy : 
wings, but it is doubtful if they will 
see much service against the Midd¬ 

Saturday Coach Nelson’s men will 
attempt to avenge the defeat suffered 
at the hands of Mass. State earlier | 
in the season. At that time the Elue i 
and White was unable to use freshmen, j 
but with the acquisition of several first I 
year men they should be in a position 
to make a strong bid for victory. Since 
the first encounter the home team has 
come along fast, as the four goals 
against Colgate testify. 

Middlebury will probably start the 
same lineup that opened against Col¬ 
gate, with Hickoox in the net, and the 
MacLean brothers doing the bumping 
at the defence posts; Melbye or Clark 
at center ice; and Yeomans and Dwyer 
at the wings. 

The team has been hampered in prac¬ 
tise thus far by insufficient ice. 

Williams Hockey Postponed 

Rain cancelled the Middlebury- 
Williams hockey match scheduled 
for last night at Williamstown, ac¬ 
cording to a wire received by the 
CAMPUS early this morning. The 
team is proceeding today to Prince¬ 
ton, where they will play tomorrow. 


DKE 11 - SPE 1 

The first intramural hockey game of 
the season was played on the college 
rink Saturday, DKE defeating SPE 
11 - 1 . 

From the first whistle to the last 
the Dekes proved to be the better of 
the teams, scoring six times in the 
first half while holding SPE scoreless. 
In the second half the under-dog suc¬ 
ceeded in putting one score by Robbins. 
Dawes and Forbush were outstanding 
for DKE while Blaisdell scored the lone 
goal for SPE. 

ASP 4 - BK 3 

Spectators witnessed a very thrilling 
hockey game on the college rink last 
Saturday afternoon when ASP van¬ 
quished the scrappy BK team in an over 
time period, 4-3. 

The teams were very evenly matched, 
BK showing a somewhat better brand 
of hockey in the first period, leading 
at half time 2-0. However, in the sec¬ 
ond period ASP tied <the score which 
called for an overtime period. After 
five minutes rest, play was resumed and 
ASP succeeded in breaking through the 
BK defense to score the winning point. 
Lombardi starred for BK with Steven¬ 
son and Pratt going best for ASP. 

CP 9 - BP 0 

CP easily defeated BP on the college 
rink Monday evening by a score of 

The game was a walk away for the 
CP sextet, at no time were the winners 
hard pressed. With Easier leading the 
attack, they swept into an early lead 
and completely checked the BP ad¬ 

DU 3 - DKE 1 

Last night the college rink was the 
scene of a very spectacular hockey 
battle in which DU defeated DKE 3-1. 

In the early part of the first period 
DKE scored the first goal, and just 
before the gun Delta Upsilon tied the i 
score. With only a few minutes to | 
play in the second period DU again ' 
battled its way through the opposing 
defense and _ caged another shot. 

The last period was a thriller, the 
Dekes staging a good fight to again tie 
the count. They nearly did so on one 
shot but the referee made the decision 
that the puck did not pass the line 
at the front of the cage. In the last 
few minutes of play DU got away with a 
fast passing combination to drive an- | 
other past Robbins clinching the game i 

Flagg and Brooks starred in the DU 
forward line while Collins and Williams 
were towers of strength in the defensive 
zone. Morhouse and Brown were the 
center of interest for DKE. 

KDR 5 - Neutrals 1 

In a scrappy hockey game last night 
on the college rink KDR easily defeated 
Neutrals 5-1. 

In spite of increasing rain KDR pre¬ 
sented a very snappy passing combina¬ 
tion that succeeded in scoring two 
goals in the first period, holding their 
opponents scoreless. During the last 
moments of the second period the neu¬ 
trals drove one into the cage after a 
scrimmage before the net. KDR. again 
s;aging some fine pass work, pierced the 
opposing defense to score two more 
goals in the last period. 

Hickcox and Nash did the tallying for 
KDR while Rubb caged the lone goal 
for the neutrals.

| Middlebury won its opening state 
series contest last Saturday night when 
it defeated Norwich by a decisive score 
of 47-29. Playing on the home court 
the Panthers completely outclassed 
their opponents, jumping off to a lead 
which was never relinquished. 

The Blue and White started the game 
with three freshmen in the line-up 
and assumed 'the offensive from the 
start. Clonan was the first to score, 
tapping the ball in from underneath 
the basket on a follow up shot. Cor¬ 
liss then dropped in a shot from the 
left side of the court, but Leddy broke 
the ice for Norwich by sinking a 
basket from the foul line. Mid¬ 
dlebury ran up a lead of 19-12 at half 
time and had command of the ball 
during most of the first half. It was 
not a very interesting game from the 
standpoint of the spectator, being too 
slow and unspectacular. 

The second period saw the Horsemen 
attempt to cut down the Panther lead 
by opening up with a faster attack. 
Paced by Leddy they managed to draw 
up to a 22-18 count, but here the Blue 
and White started to sink shots from 
all angles and widened the gap to 

Middlebury played its best defen¬ 
sive game of the year against the 
Cadets, and for the first time this year 
an opponent was held under thirty 
points. The guarding of Corliss, Mac- 
Kenzle and Lyon was excellent. Many 
times one or the other would take the 
ball off the backboard and start down 
the court before the Horsemen had 
a chance to get set. The offensive was 
likewise at its best, the quintet roll¬ 
ing up its highest score this season. 
Corliss and Clonan led in the attack, 
the former garnering thirteen points 
while the latter was responsible for 

For Norwich, Leddy was the main 
cog and individual high scorer of the 
game. He sank seven baskets and one 
foul shot in amassing his fifteen points,

regulations, which were accepted by all 
the sororities, were as follows: "The 
question to be voted on now reads: With 
the understanding that this action on 
the part of the administration would 
be final, the sorority women of Middle- 
bury College and of the Women’s 
College at Middlebury request that 
sororities be abolished. The vote with¬ 
in each chapter shall be decided by 
the chapter Itself in accordance with 
its requirements. This vote shall be a 
closed vote. Following the chapter 
meetings, there will be a Pan-Hellenic 
meeting at eight-thirty in the Sigma 
Kappa rooms, In the council vote, 
there must be at least thirteen votes to 

When this recommendation was made 
to the sororities, the matter was still in 
the hands of the Pan-Hellenic council. 
However, since that time, a second peti¬ 
tion drawn up by the same group as 
the first and likewise concerning the 
method of voting, has been presented 
to the administration. This petition, 
signed by ninety-six sorority women, 
was presented to the administration 
Monday, February 6. Until the admin¬ 
istration shall have decided whether or 
not the vote is to be taken numerically, 
no further steps can be taken by the 
Pan-Hellenic council. 

In the event that the administration 
decides in favor of a numerical vote, 
the remaining procedure will rest with 
them. If voting by sororities is deemed 
the best method of procedure, the 
matter will revert to the Pan-Hellenic 
council, and the vote will be taken ac¬ 
cording to the regulations quoted above. 

The statement made by the adminis¬ 
tration to the Pan-Hellenic council 
February 3 reads as follows: "As you 
know it has been the policy of the 
administration of Middlebury College 
to take as impartial a position as possi¬ 
ble in the matter of sororities on the 
women’s campus. Officially we wish 
.the majority .to have their way. 
Whether sororities are retained or 
abolished our interest is this: That the 
agency for ascertaining the wishes of 
■the group should be conducted with 
fairness and impartiality. At this time 
it seems necessary for the administra¬ 
tion to advise concerning this agency. 
The president and secretary of Pan- 
Hellenic have asked for advice and we 
have been informed that a petition is 
soon to be presented to the administra¬ 
tion concerning the method of voting. 

“In view of these facts it is recom¬ 
mended by the administration that no 
vote be taken on February 6, 1933. 
Until (this petition with the signatures 
has reached the administration of the 
College, in fairness to all concerned 
and for the sake of continuing the good 
feeling which has existed up to this 
■time, we of the administration believe 
(that both methods, voting numerically 
or voting by sororities, should be care¬ 
fully considered with the advantages 
and disadvantages of each clearly un¬ 
derstood before the vote is taken.”

such extravagance. 

Remember that there is and always 
has been a glorious natural sisterhood, 
full of opportunity for service and 
idealism. It is in such a sisterhood 
that all of us will find ourselves after 
commencement. The women of Mid¬ 
dlebury College might do well, I believe 
to abolish sororities now. With sorori¬ 
ties that initiation is only being post¬ 


Professors Davison and 

Rusby to Discuss Tariff 

Prof. John P. Davison and Prof. Paul 
Rusby will give an informal discussion 
on the internaitional tariff question, 
Friday evening, February 10, in Old 
Chapel, under the auspices of the liberal 

It is expected that Professor Davison 
will uphold the idea of the tariff and 
advocate protection for domestic .trade, 
while Professor Rusby will uphold the 
economist’s argument for a world divi¬ 
sion of commerce, with each country 
producing only the articles which it can 
produce most cheaply. 

This will be the first of a series of 
meetings open to the students of the 
college, on present world problems, and 
sponsored by the liberal club. Edward 
Yerovitz '33 will preside at this meet¬ 

To the Editor of the CAMPUS: 

One sentence in Miss Barber's edi¬ 
torial in the January 24th issue of the 
CAMPUS is outstanding, “We must 
look ahead and plan for those who 
come after us.” It is a noble senti¬ 
ment and expressed in no uncertain 
terms. Yes, we must look ahead and 
plan for those who come after us! But 
those who gain “invaluable idealism" 
(quoted from Miss Barber’s article) 
from Middlebury College itself and not 
from any small organized group, such 
as a sorority, will sincerely look ahead 
and plan for all future Middlebury 
women if they really have at heart the 
welfare and growth of Middlebury 

The class of 1936 of the Women’s 
College at Middlebury is the most 
fortunate class that has ever entered 
Middlebury! Each and every member 
has had an equal and fair opportunity 
to gain social prestige, to make 
friends, to get acquainted with every¬ 
one, to engage in competition in extra 
curricular activities on an equal foot 
ing with her classmates. Whatever 
each freshman woman has accom¬ 
plished is due to her own merits, her 
own strength of character and not to 
the "push” of a small strong group. 
Whatever she has not achieved, in 
whatever she has failed, she has only 
herself to blame and must trace the 
cause of her failure to her own inability 
to adjust herself to college life, and 
not to the drawback of not belonging to 
a sorority. If sororities are retained, 
the class of 1936 will never know some 
of the "evils” of sororities. They have 
made their start unhampered and with 
no unfair advantage. Even if a room¬ 
mate is not “rushed”, the bond of 
friendship is already too strong to be 
severed by any artificial social group¬ 

"Look to the future” (quoted from 
Miss Barber’s article) which you can 
ameliorate, "consider carefully the 
past” (quoted from Miss Barber’s ar¬ 
ticle) and its grossly false sense of 
values; and when the final vote is 
cast, if you decide that sororities are 
to be retained "for the welfare of the 
greater body”, why not insert a clause 
in the rushing rules of the Pan-Hellenic 
council which will provide for deferred 
rushing? Why not give future enter¬ 
ing classes the same "lucky break” the 
class of 1936 has enjoyed?

It would seem almost impossible to 
experience more dissimilar emotional 
reactions than those most of us felt 
Friday evening when .the College 
Dramatic Association gave some ex¬ 
cellent glimpses of O’Neil and Shaw, 
each in his typical element. Both of 
the plays were lyric in nature, dis¬ 
tinctly moods, and, especially is this 
true of the first, the spectator was so 
captivated by the spirit of the mood 
that he was quite oblivious to any de¬ 
fects of action or speech. Of course, 
this is closely synonymous with saying 
that "Where The Cross is Made” was 
done admirably — the actors need no 
reassurance of that score, for the tense 
silence of the audience gave evidence 
of the spell discriminating acting of a 
forceful drama exercised on a critical 
student group. 

The acting was of a very even tenor 
but Mr. Gove merits commendation for 
keeping so sustained and trying a part 
from fagging either himself or his audi¬ 
ence. Mr. Hoyt’s interpretation of 
Captain Bartlett curiously brought a 
sense of relief to the over taut situa¬ 
tion that was both unexpected and 
agreeable. He has a surety of manner 
in speech and aotion that rings true. 
Miss Sitterly, by her very natural, 
nicely controlled acting offered effec¬ 
tive contrast to the abnormal situa¬ 
tions about her. I dislike to criticize 
Mr. Deedman for I felt he made great 
effort to give us his best, but therein 
was the fault — the effort was appar¬ 
ent. No little improvement could have 
been gained merely by modulating his 

The setting and stage mechanics con¬ 
tributed greatly to creating atmosphere. 
It was adequate wind and the lighting 
effects were carefully managed. The 
production staff did professional work. 

"How He Lied to Her Husband” was 
given the boisterous reception it de¬ 
served. No one but Shaw could make 
so much of so little for no one but 
Shaw is so clever a bluffer. Certainly 
the cast did Shaw credit. Miss West 
was as much at ease handling the lines 
as the Englishman was at writing them, 
and Mr. Allbee played up to her feel¬ 
ingly. Mr. Hutchins has been cast in 
fitter roles. He was, it seemed, too 
bourgeois in form and speech even for 
Mr. Bompas. But as the play was 
really “He and She” (the husband 
served appropriately as a foil for the 
ingenious acting of the other two. 

The choice and order of the plays 
was fortunate, the casts very able, the 
stage-craft well managed, the audience 
appreciative. It was a thoroughly good 
evening, even to the new carpeting.

Dr. James L. Barton’s Visit 
Postponed Due to Illness 

The visit of Dr. James L. Barton ’81, 
scheduled for this week, February 7 to 
10, has been indefinitely postponed on 
account of illness. 

Dr. Barton was to have come under 
the auspices of the liberal club. Vari¬ 
ous group discussions and chapel talks 
had been arranged. A similar visit 
to the college was made last year. 

After graduation from Middlebury, 
Dr. Barton attended Hartford theologi¬ 
cal seminary, from which he was gra¬ 
duated in 1885. The same year he went 
as a missionary to Harpoot, Turkey, 
where he remained for nine years. He 
was appointed secretary of the Ameri¬ 
can board of commissioners for foreign 
missions in 189“*, and in subsequent 
years his duties included visits to the 
orient, Dr. Barton is the author of a 
number of books on foreign missions. 

Mr. and Mrs. E. J. Wiley Give Party 
For Sons and Daughters of Alumni 

Twenty-five students, sons and 
daughters of Middlebury graduates, at¬ 
tended an informal party at the home 
of Mr. and Mrs. Edgar J. Wiley, Friday 
evening, February 3. 

Black panthers were modeled in gum, 
Middlebury songs were sung, and several 
games were played during the course of 
the evening. 

This entertainment, the first of its 
kind in the history of the college, fol¬ 
lowed the recent move taken to secure 
a photograph of these students in a 
group, which will accompany a feature 
article to appear in the next edition of 
the alumni news letter.
